I’m a big fan of internships. I was the first intern at Travelers’ Tales and learned heaps about publishing from all angles. It’s a great way to take a look at a business that you have an interest in when you are a little deficient on the experience side, or if you just don’t know which position/job you want to start at. It’s great for people in college or straight out of college figuring things out. And even if you learn, whoa, publishing is not what I thought it was, that is still valuable time spent.
With that out of the way, PLANET magazine is looking for an intern. It’s unpaid, but I would suggest worth your time if you’re considering a step into the magazine business.
